I placed fertilizer in the container plants and my wife dutifully watered it in later in the day.

My wife made a tomato salad, using tomatoes from nearly every color in the rainbow. The salad colors were enticing by itself. We visited the "seed lady" in the afternoon and enjoyed dinner with her company. The salad was a hit.

We harvested over 150 Garden Peach tomatoes this year (154)! However, most of the recent Garden Peach tomatoes are close to inedible. They're small and desiccated. This plant may get pulled sooner rather than later.
